41pounds.org is an organization working to eliminate a big personal nuisance and environmental hazard junk mail. Our name comes from the amount of junk mail the average person receives each year (credit card applications, catalogs, coupon books, etc.) which for the most part goes directly into the trash can or recycling bin. Even with recycling programs all over the country, the majority of household waste is junk mail, and paper takes up about 40% of landfill space! 41pounds.org was founded by three brothers in Ferndale, Michigan (a suburb of Detroit) in 2006. Since then, 41pounds.org has grown by word of mouth and through partnerships with nonprofit organizations who share our goals and our excitement about the impact of stopping junk mail.
